2020 Canadian Kraken - Creatures of the North

Recommended Posts

2020-2-oz-canadian-kraken-silver-coin-re

For centuries, mariners have reported strange sightings of a massive, shipwrecking sea monster; the "Kraken". The beast was said to be so big it could be mistaken for an island, with tentacles powerful enough to tear a ship in two.

Two Ounce Kraken Silver Coin is the first release of the brand new “Creatures of the North” coin series from the Royal Canadian Mint. The series is set to have two releases every year starting in 2020.

The Creatures of the North series will celebrate the fantastic and mysterious creatures of Canada’s seas, lands and skies.

Denomination: 10 Dollars
Metal Content: 2 Troy Ounce (62.67 Grams)
Purity: .9999

On pre sale in Europe

Personally I love the design of the Kraken and hope the rest of the series will rise to the occasion.

The more I look at it... the more I like it. Nice to see some decent new bullion releases from the RCM. I especially like the 2oz size that they seem to be ramping up production of. Thanks for posting!

It has something alluring.

I hope they will do a 10 oz version, the details will be amazing.

even if I think that the design could be better, the serie is something different as saw in bullion designs so I will purchase some because I expect a good quality and a serie really demanded in the future

Really ? I am not so sure i have a lot of after 2018 Canada coins and i still see milk spot on some or them 

I'd like to see them. I have a decent amount of RCM Silver. I've got 2013 1.5 Polar Bears and 2017 Lynx coins that are heavily spotted. I have 2015 1.5 Polar Bears, 2016 Cougars that are in immaculate condition.  I have 2018 Wolves, 2019 and 2020 Maples, Magnificent Maples, Grizzlies and presumably recently minted10 oz. silver bars that are perfectly fine. The trend I notice most of all is that everything post 2018 has no spots and look great.

All post 2018 rcm silver is good. They solved the problem.

seriously, people need to give RCM more credit on the milkspotting. yes it was terrible before, but they actively did something about it and as many people can attest it they actually produced results (wasn't just some marketing gimmick)

 

Not quite true.  It may have helped to reduce the problem, but it has not been completely solved.  I have multiple 2018+ canadian coins with spots.  The whole coin isnt covered in milky haze like i have seen on some pre 2017, but they still have spots.

I do think its a solvable problem.  I have yet to see an Intaglio Mint coin spot.  Maybe I have just gotten lucky, or maybe they are doing something different in their minting process.  On Golden state mint rounds (e.g. world of dragons, other provident series) I still see spots frequently.

I don't need to proof anything .  Don't believe then go and buy . I have my own opinion based on my own experience which i share but it doesn't mean i force anyone to follow it

I have big  collection of Intaglio Mint with no spot milk at all  ( lucky ?  :)  ) .

I also have a lot of Golden state mint rounds which developed some yellow staff after 2-3 years but i was able to clean it

No need to be defensive, I'm not doubting you I'd just like to see it.

Is this mintage to demand?  I've looked around and can't find any mintage numbers.

In response to questions regarding mintage...  at the moment there are no caps although I've made a suggestion to the design team to place a limit on the series to help keep demand strong.  As for timing of release, we should begin customer shipping of the Kraken's in the next week or so as I believe they have or are just about to, exit production.

Cheers,

Michael

Any possibility of a ten ounce version?

For the moment and to the extent of my understanding, the intent for the Creatures of the North series is just 2 oz coins.  I can certainly pose the request for a 10 ounce version...  might be a nice way to close out the series  😃
